Bill Kimmitt MRICS, MNAEA

Chartered Surveyor

Bill has only ever worked in property. He joined a famous firm of chartered surveyors in Sunderland, CHARLES BELL, as a trainee chartered surveyor in 1981. By 1983, he was manager of Charles Bell Estate Agency branches in Seaham and Horden, cutting his teeth during the miners strike at that time. He qualified as a chartered surveyor in 1986, claiming the Estates Gazette prize for the highest overall mark in the Commonwealth a rare achievement for anyone outside Oxford, Cambridge or the city of London let alone a bricklayers son from Shotton Colliery! Bill became an associate partner in Charles Bell at the age of twenty four, the youngest in the firms 160 year history. When Halifax acquired Charles Bell in 1987, he was promoted from branch manager to senior branch manager and then residential executive, and finally to area manager. In doing so, Bill gained huge experience in selling properties throughout the northeast, but East Durham and Sunderland were always his home turf. As well as having direct responsibility for the existing estate agency operation, Bill is also a practicing estate agent and has hands on involvement with the Seaham and Houghton branches. He is also a fully qualified chartered surveyor and carries out residential and commercial surveys and valuations on a daily basis. Bill is regionally renowned as an expert and frequently acts as expert witness in complicated property court issues.
